Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

I've been to 3 different KIA Dealers and all of them told me that there is only a 3 year Warranty on the Paint and Clear Coat. Aside from several Scratches the Body it's in good condition and there is only 71200 miles on the Vehicle.
